With Pierre Thomas (ankle) expected to return in Week 14 against the Rams, there is growing concern that the Saints will have a cluttered backfield with Thomas, Reggie Bush and Chris Ivory, who has 254 yards and five touchdowns in his last three games. However, coach Sean Payton talked about that issue Wednesday and sounded as though Ivory will lead the rushing attack in Week 14. "Chris has done a number of good things and I don't want to affect his snap count at all in regards to his carries," Payton said. "He's a different type of runner than either Pierre or Reggie. ... He runs hard. I thought he ran well last Sunday in Cincinnati." Yet, for all of Ivory's recent success, he said, "I've never looked at myself as a No. 1 guy." "When my number is called, I'm just going to go out and just do what Chris can do," Ivory said. "I'm not really focused on am I still going to get these carries or are they still going to play me as much. ... I've got a role on this team."
Ivory had 117 yards on 15 carries, including a 55-yard touchdown, in the Saints' 34-30 victory over the Bengals. He pounded his way in for a couple short touchdowns at Dallas on Thanksgiving and rushed for 99 yards and a score in a win over Seattle three games ago. Ivory's 636 yards rushing in 10 games make him by far the Saints' leading rusher heading into this Sunday's home game against St. Louis. New Orleans is probably going to ease Thomas back into action after he missed so much time with the ankle injury, and Bush is still trying to get into rhythm after missing several weeks with a broken leg. So, if you are looking to start a Saints RB in Week 14, then make it Ivory.
